For Mentors & Coaches
We are dedicated to ensuring that coaches of all sponsored programs are provided with the necessary resources to effectively run a safe and positive environment for all athletes within each program. This comes in the form of financial support for the program as well as educational opportunities for coaches to develop best practice methods of developing student athlete wrestlers.
Partnership with SportUp
We have partnered with SportUp to deliver access to a wealth of resources relating to proper wrestling technique that should be demonstrated during practices. SportUp will allow coaches to communicate effectively with their student-athletes and their families to deliver a more integrated experience for everyone involved in BTSP.

High School Application Process
Under the best of conditions, applying to high school in Philadelphia can be a trying exercise. Students in Philadelphia have more than 80 public high school options, District and charter, not to mention the growing number of cyber schools. Beat the Streets Philadelphia is dedicated to helping you prepare your child for the process by providing you with the proper up-to-date forms, one-on-one counseling sessions and guidance throughout the application process.
- All 8th graders must fill out a high school application, even if they plan to attend their local neighborhood school.
- In many District schools, 8th graders will be applying to high schools without the help of full-time school counselors, who usually lead the process.
- For the first time in recent memory, the District will not print a high school directory; it will be available only online.
- The District is not holding its annual High School Expo. However, there will be one on Nov. 16 at Drexel University, underwritten largely by the Philadelphia School Partnership (PSP).
- The District is encouraging each high school to conduct an open house during which prospective students and parents can visit.
- The city’s Great Schools Compact is promoting a common deadline – Dec. 6 – for District and charter school applications, as well as a common application form for admission to charters. However, it is unclear how many charter schools will participate.
